The City of St. George and the surrounding towns in southern Utah have grown rapidly over the past decades. And one of the surest signs of that growth has been the number of restaurants that are thriving in the city.
One of the newest restaurants in the area is Jay Birds Chicken.
Founded in Long Beach, California, Jay Birds serves Nashville style hot chicken. Jay Bird’s Chicken is a representation of Chef Jay’s upbringing in Chicago, IL where he would spend the summers visiting Nashville and frying chicken every Sunday as a family tradition. Jay Bird’s strives to deliver food that is layered with flavors and culinary techniques the whole family will enjoy. Whether it’s your first visit, or you’re a long-time customer, their goal is to ensure you leave happy and full each time you visit!
It was a challenging project, with a lot of details that needed attention.
A complete kitchen remodel involved the replacement of nearly a dozen commercial appliances and a great deal of cleaning and remodeling.
Our friends at Red Rock Flooring replaced tile throughout the kitchen and both restrooms and in the beverage station in the lobby.
We also covered the front facade in tile and a similar-sized area covering the drive-through window.
Stucco work, ceiling tiles, finish work on the seating area in the lobby, the list of improvements that were made to the interior of the restaurant space is lengthy.
But the rewards of seeing Jay Birds filled with hungry patrons and Jay himself handing out trays of delicious-looking Nashville-style hot chicken during the grand opening and after a sucessful business renovation were worth the effort.
As general contractors, we at Sunstar are proud to call ourselves experts in commercial tenant improvements, business remodeling, business renovation, commercial build-outs, or whatever else you want to call the process of taking a run-down older space and turning it back into a space that can help a business thrive. A space that makes customers want to visit. A space that provides ambiance and helps generate positive reviews and great experiences for visitors.
From improving and repairing apartments and condominiums to hotels and businesses large and small, our team sees the value in our work when we see a new tenant, be it a commercial tenant or a single-family tenant, thriving in a space we held to build out.
And we love seeing happy building owners who can once again command top dollar for their rental spaces. It’s really a win-win for everyone involved when spaces like the old Arby’s building are brought back to life and can serve as new anchors to the economic growth in St. George and the surrounding area instead of eye-sores that sit and remain unoccupied.
It’s one of the reasons we really love what we do at Sunstar Construction!
